Governor Willie Obiano has said that the threats from the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) will not affect the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State.
Obiano, who said everything was ready for the election, made the statement on Tuesday, shortly after he picked his expression of interest and nomination forms of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to vie for a second term.
APGA’s primary for the election has been scheduled for August 15.
The governor, who arrived at the national secretariat of the party, in Abuja, alongside the immediate past national chairman of the party, Chief Victor Umeh and other loyalists, also held a brief meeting with the incumbent national chairman of the party, Dr. Victor Oye.
Obiano said: “By the way, you would have heard that war veterans who met with me, the people that fought the war, about 87 of them, assured me that they would support the election and they endorsed my second term journey.
“The leader of that group, General Achuzie assured me of a peaceful election in the state.
“Of cause nobody can stop election in Anambra when INEC has mapped out timetable for that election. We would not even allow anybody to stop election in Anambra State, we would not allow that.”
